Soon after winning the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in Dreamgirls, anticipation quickly built for R&B singer/actress Jennifer Hudson‘s upcoming debut album (for which we featured her buzz single collabo with Papoose, Special). However, at some point during her recording process, Arista grew disappointed in the musical direction of the project. So, J-Hud got back to work on the album, but with a new slew of A-list assistants. Now, DJBooth is proud to present the official first single for the album, showing the Chicago native caught up in a controlling relationship, always in her man’s Spotlight. Thanks to Ne-Yo‘s skills on the pen and Stargate‘s on the boards, expect Hudson to stay in the charts’ Spotlight for quite a while, leading up to the long-awaited album’s newly set release date, September 30.
